My Rating 84 Points.
Deep purple in color with a purplish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, plums, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, mocha, smoke, barnyard, vegetables, red candy and black pepper.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, blueberries, currants, vanilla, cloves, oak, vegetables, bitter herbs and black pepper.
Medium finish with soft tannins and black pepper.
This is a simple Malbec from Mendoza. Almost balanced and a little tart, with a light mouthfeel. Gentle and a bit watery.
Needs a couple of hours to open up, which I didn’t have.
A little light for an Argentinian Malbec. The nose reminds me of a South American Pinot Noir, actually.
I paired it with a cheese plate.
Aged in French and American Oak for 9 months.
13.5% alcohol by volume.
